Most of us here are trying to live within a budget, stretch our hard-earned dollars, make wise financial choices, seek out deals, and live an overall thrifty lifestyle. There are a million and one ways to do this.
As couponers, we know the value of investing a little bit now to save a lot later. We buy newspapers to have coupon savings for later. We buy Christmas gifts all throughout the year when the price is right so that we don’t pay full price when December rolls around. The list goes on.
Taking care of your vehicle is very much the same way. One great way to save money is by taking care of our current vehicles so that we don’t have to replace them with new ones quite as often. It may require a little bit of financial sacrifice a few times a year, but it’s worth it in the long run. Keeping up with vehicle maintenance can save you thousands of dollars in repairs later on.
Jiffy Lube encourages this frugal mindset about our vehicle. They celebrate “Keeping Your Ride Alive” with regular maintenance. They even have a Facebook page dedicated to it! Some of their Winter driving tips are: Check your vitals, keep your gas tank at least half-full, check your oil grade, and avoid panic. They encourage people to share their high mileage vehicle stories on their Facebook page.
And to help you save even more on your car maintenance, Jiffy Lube is offering two lucky Cha-Ching On A Shoestring readers a $35 gift card!
